FW: Nazgûl Reinforcements Inbound

A new batch of Nazgûl are coming for the One Ring…

via Forge World

The Nazgûl of Dol Guldur 2 £32

Appearing at Dol Guldur in a very different form to that of the Black Riders, at this point in their existence the Nazgûl are much swifter with a blade than the robed figures that appear many years later. Summoned into being by the Necromancer of Dol Guldur, the Nazgûl engage the White Council in a grim ballet of whirling blades and darting movement. Able to constantly return to battle once banished, the servants of the Dark Lord are a deadly foe unlike any the White Council has ever faced before.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble The Nazgûl of Dol Guldur 2, 3 Middle-earth™ miniatures. Each is remarkably sinister, with heavy robes, armour, spiked helmets and cowls obscuring their true forms, with grim weaponry in their gauntleted hands – The Slayer of Men wields an enormous, brutal barbed spear, Khamûl the Easterling clutches a mace and the Lingering Shadow holds not 1 but 2 swords. These miniatures are the perfect Hero units for an Evil army!

The miniatures come as 9 components and are supplied with 3 25mm round bases. Rules can be found in The Hobbit: Motion Picture TrilogyThere and Back Again.

 

And just for the record and to avoid confusion, here’s a picture of the previous release from Forge World.

Well how about that – there WAS a second set on the way. Curiously, there are 9 Ringwraiths and this makes 6. I wonder what that could mean…

  • Ordered for my mordor forces…

    Painted up they don’t look bad, but this seems like someone’s first attempt at mini sculpting:

    I love, love, love this game AND this army, but these guys’ legs are definitely too short. It’s almost comical.

    I will be converting mine!

      Maybe the Squat clock was reset by accident.

    Such a shame that they are just body doubles with slight alterations in weaponry to mark them out, I really want to love them. I could even have overlook the weird leg proportions if they had more flair.
    The original Nazgûls is such a good example in bringing character to essentially identical figures, really wasted potential that these haven’t got the same love.

    Why there are only 6, BoLS? Because WETA only ever made six Nazgûl concepts for the Hobbit movies; if you look closely, you can see the doubles.

  • Dmitrij Pozdniakov

    I really like how they did different armor stiles for the nazgul, representing that they were lords and kings of different people and cultures.

  • Vanders

    Middle Earth is such a contrast to Warhammer. It’s very subdued and serious. I love it.

  • Andy Wise

    Great to see that Forgeworld are giving local kids the opportunity to do some sculpting for them now.

    They’re even letting pre school children follow up with painting them.
